Top 10 Best Cities in the United Kingdom

The Top Ten
1 London London is the capital and most populous city of England and the United Kingdom. Standing on the River Thames in the south eastern part of the island of Great Britain, London has been a major settlement for two millennia. London is one of the world's most important global cities. It exerts considerable ...read more.

It breaks my heart not to see London at its rightful place. Beautiful; historical; charming; elegant. London is welcoming, has friendly, intelligent, funny individuals. It's the only place I can truly call home. It captured my heart the very first time my parents took me to visit at the age of seven. I now work in central London and adore every second I spend there. I even travel back at weekends just to be 'home' again. I would love to live and settle down there. It's the capital of England, Great Britain and, yes, the world!

Not just the best city in the UK, but also in the world. Pollsters do vouch for London's premier status in the following: financial, government, arts, fashion, music, transportation, tourism, software development, science breakthroughs and even top universities in education. Think of all these aspects and see if you could come up with a city that seems close. Keep on trying...

Everywhere, in the UK is beautiful and nice. Best country ever. Wales is adorable too. I have now loved in London for ten years. I plan in staying here until my retirement (even death). London and Wales are home, mighty and UK is best place ever!

I lived & worked in London for seven years. bpritgirl says it all for me. My favvourite people were the bus conductors. My favourite Londoner is Russell Brand. I'm a people person & where else would you find more interesting people? Pride.

2 Edinburgh

Edinburgh is one of the best cities in he world. (in my opinion) It has amazing attractions and monuments, and Edinburgh Castle is outstanding. It often holds a show called the 'Edinburgh Tattoo' and it is amazing. If you are ever looking for a day out, visit Edinburgh!

The most beautiful city in the U.K. London has the size but Edinburgh is more of a looker.

Beautiful city. Kind locals and great shopping. Very clean and safe even in the festival season

Greatest place on earth! The worst place is London

3 Manchester

My family Hollingworth is from there, even have a little part of it named Hollingworth. My family was the 1st family in America in 1607 Jamestown and started their journey from Manchester. I have never been too England but I bet Manchester is the best.

I'm from Manchester, and I'm so glad I live here! It is amazingly homey and cosy!

4 Liverpool Liverpool is a city and metropolitan borough in Merseyside, England. As of 2018, the population is approximately 494,814.

Amazing City! By far the best place in the UK. Probably the best City for music in the world and has got loads of tourist attractions.

Really a beautiful city with free WiFi and vibrant environment...

Best by far, just see it at night.

How is manchaster number 3! Liverpool should be at least number 3

5 Birmingham

Most underrated but up and coming city in the country.

6 Newcastle

It is a fantastic City vibrant interesting and is a lot bigger than you think if you explore it

7 Leeds

I love this city the most, its lights are amazing and I think it's a great place to visit.

Leeds is suprisingly quite a nice place now, unlike what it used to be.

8 York

I've been here, it's such a beautiful city, the downtown area consists of beautiful medieval architecture, the main showpiece is definitely the cathedral, the entrance to it is just grand, the inside has a beautiful Nave and views from the cathedral's tower are stunning. York also has a couple of interesting ruins such as the ruins of an abbey located near the river. York was also a great city as it has a large train museum. I love York so much. I would definitely go back.

Beautiful place, gorgeous buildings, packed with things to do.
Classy compared to Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle and Birmingham.
One of the best

9 Glasgow

Glasgow rules... True scots live here!

10 Sheffield

The peace gardens are the most beautiful thing in the evening

The Contenders
11 Bristol

Bristol has become a lovely city to live in. Okay the buses could be run better but it is now a relaxing diverse city to be in with plenty of things to do for the whole family. As with any city it has things that could be improved on but I know that whatever I am going to do in my day it's going to be a good day out whether it is family orientated or just adult entertainment. There are all kinds of festivals going on with a great atmosphere. We have the benefit of easy access to other nearby places like Clifton, Weston Super Mare, Gloucestershire or Bath or crossing the bridge to Wales for a complete change depending on how we feel. As Bristol is now I am very happy to be here.

12 Nottingham
13 Brighton

Pewdiepie lives here

14 Cambridge

We are better than hull

15 Bath

The most beautiful city in the world, without a doubt.

Best city in the world hands down.

Best city in world

16 Southampton

Great history, great shopping, great green space and great nightlife, although needs to make better use of tourists and advertise whats on more as it is the busiest cruise port in Europe.
Surrounded by nice places like Winchester and the New Forest as well.

17 Cardiff

Cardiff is the best

18 Hull
19 Leicester
20 Chichester

I love chichester it's my home and also there's beautiful buildings like the cathedral.

21 Dundee
22 Blackpool

Great and wonderful place, only that the trams are SOOO slow, heck the old ones are faster than the modern.

23 Exeter

Beautiful city in the south west.

24 Belfast Belfast is the capital and largest city of Northern Ireland, the second-largest city in Ireland after Dublin, and is situated around the River Lagan, which runs through the city.

Yes their may be a lot of dicks in Belfast but there is everywhere in the world.
I'm so proud to say that I'm from Northern Ireland we've had a very troubled path and we've come such a long and glorious way.
They say Home is where the heart is, and my heart is truely and will always be in the heart of northern ireland.

Don't believe the horror stories. Most of the drama is gone. Only bad thing is the homophobic anti-abortion government.

Never been there but looks kinda scary!
